The gun registry vote has not helped the opposition parties. A new Ipsos Reid poll taken during the long gun registry debate and vote shows Jack Layton's NDP now tied with Lizzy May's Greens. Not good! Both are at 12%. There were some in the media who said the Liberals were winners in this. Sure looks like it, they lost 2 pts. The CPC are up 1 pt.
They might have taken a different strategy which probably wouldn't have hurt them but too late now. That's what you get when you nudge your members to vote contrary to voters wishes. Me thinks there are going to be some MPs that are going to lose their seats when the next election rolls around. Bring it on!
